a couple questions? >> originally the conception of the book is reading about martin luther and how he wrote his manifesto and it basically challenged the catholic church and originally that was the thought of the book, but of course nobody wants to hear a black eye right about martin luther in the 1600s, so it morphed into just a look at how comedically i've been in every part of this country and i don't think there's a state i haven't been to. i think i've noticed a palpable change in not only just as a culture, but even interacting interpol truly, the thing we expect as i remember when i was growing up, and others to save the world doesn't go you anything and now we have children who believe they are entitled. i think we all feel like that to a greater or lesser degree. vicious not the place we grew up regardless of the challenges we all face. i think there's a certain sense of pride. like my father swept plains and worked at a steel mill, but he was proud to do this job and he's still that man. i hope to instill that in my children. but we come from a nation of people who came from
of martin luther king jr., who went to jail because he wanted a better future, we're going to do whatever it takes to ensure that our kids have a better future at mlk. but as you think about this, i want you to think about 8, 3, 33, and 17. and when we start talking about those numbers being 100%, then we're talking about what the real work is about. [ applause ] >> so we're going to move on to -- >> president yee? superintendent, i am from martin luther king. >> i'm sorry, do you have a speaker card? >> i don't have a speaker card. >> i'm sorry. >> i am asking if i could say a few words, please? >> no. you don't have a speaker card. >> i just wanted to thank superintendent carranza for taking a stand and for those watching online, letting them know the reality of what is really going on. if he is bold enough to take a stand, i hope and a pray that everyone here in this room, on this board, all educators, parents, security, secretaries, whoever they may be, who are in charge of our children when they are not in our care, and they are at the school site that we have the utmost co
and the superintendent said it was slander. there was no physical abuse and bullying of students at martin luther king. well, i would say there was a thorough investigation and the staff involved in that incident haven't been interviewed bit management at the school district. so what kind of thorough investigation was done by school district about the bullying of students at martin luther king school? furthermore we just heard about the charter school and want a music room bechtel and the program are involve in san francisco as are other privatization companis who want to privatize the schools and drive the schools towards core standards. i would argue that is for the destruction of education. it's not the advance of students of san francisco and the students of this country. core standards are being used not to provide more teaching, more education, but to drive more testing and to drive really the students out and further privatization of the school. another issue was a video done of this incident at the school. there was a video done of the physical abuse of the student at the school and apparent
of ghandi and martin luther king, and he's even black, but nobody cares or who who he is. they are on opposite sides of the great divide. he's someone who ought to win the nobel peace prize. give it to the ladies in white. these people who began, they were wives and sisters and daughters and so on of political prisoners caught up in the sowled black spring. a wonderful group. they are beaten and beaten severely for what they do. they hold candle light vigils and the like, and the state just can't stand it and it makes things very difficult for them. let me quote armando, used to be known, still known by some of us as the cuban writing a once famous memoir called "against all hope." a cuban dictatorship were right wing rather than left wing, we would have won nobel peace prizest already. i said in the office about the objection to my colleagues that the left, if i may, so often sets the agenda, determines what we talk about, even if we disagree, people like us, here, disagree. they term what we talk about. there's a man named allen gross, and elliot knows plenty about him,
. martin luther king, the arduous path of idealism, peaceful resistance, civil disobedience, of voluntary renunciation for the sake of future generations she would never know. the path of hope. it was not the life she wanted, but it was, she knew, her calling. and she has been faithful. we are honored today to stand with you, my friend, for the noble cause that you embody. [applause] >> ladies and gentlemen, the majority leader of the united states senate, the honorable harry reid. >> today the people of burma and the united states honor aung san suu kyi for her personal sacrifice and her dedication to spreading freedom and justice not only in burma, but the world. even when it meant separation from her family, when it meant being apart from her husband at the hour of his death, suu kyi has remained true to her cause. today i also recognize my colleague, republican leader mitch mcconnell. i have stood next to him on the senate floor now for a long time, and there's no cause for which he has been more pronounced than doing something about suu kyi and burma. .. but i'm pleased where burma p
